Thebarton Community Centre, corner of South Road and Ashwin Parade, Torrensville (car park entrance via South Road)

Event Description

Why does hunger still exist in developed countries like Australia? This is a hidden issue that is not often discussed, however 1 in 10 Australians are food insecure.

Come along to an engaging evening of discussion on why this issue exists and how we can end it, with special guest Joel Berg, Executive Director of the New York Coalition Against Hunger.

This is also an opportunity to acknowledge the support of the community, corporates, government and individuals alike in fighting food insecurity for a better food system.

Stay after the discussion for drinks and nibbles to celebrate the joint launch of Fair Food Week and Anti-Poverty Week in Adelaide.
